This fall, Community School of the Arts (CSA) raised $1,700 through power2give.org to provide scholarships to two outstanding young musicians under the age of 10.  These merit scholarships are awarded yearly based on the quality of an audition and cover $750 of the student’s tuition for the year.

The scholarships were presented to Ryan, 9, who has studied the violin at CSA for five years, and his sister Katherine Elizabeth, 7, who has studied the cello for two years.

Ryan and Katherine Elizabeth were judged at the scholarship auditions by two doctorate-level musicians with no affiliation to CSA.  The scholarships are awarded based on the rankings of the adjudicators and on pure talent, which they both have plenty of.

“Community School of the Arts has been delighted with its power2give success during the website’s first 90 days,” said President and Executive Director Andrea Stevenson. “We’ve already had four projects fully funded, enabling us to tune and maintain all our teaching pianos, support two low-income music students with financial aid, and honor two outstanding young string students with merit scholarships.”
